NEW ONLINE IRISH DATABASE AND IGI UPDATES

     Today, I have two updates about online resources--one free, one not.  The Irish genealogy world has been buzzing about the Irish version of Find My Past that is now available (the company is known for their UK operations). I have been waiting a bit to write about it until I tried it out for myself. Using the free search and examining the record groups in the database, I did not find much that would help me in my own research. But there are some interesting records in their database that might help other researchers. Don't forget to read my last week's post "Guidelines for Being a Smart Genealogy Consumer" before you pay for online information at any database.

     The dedicated volunteers at the Irish Genealogical Projects continue in their mission to provide free records to fellow researchers. If your ancestor was in the Royal Irish Constabulary, you will want to check the IGP regularly because they have been adding RIC records at a rapid pace.
     Some of their latest additions are as follows:
